How to open a Precious Metals IRA in 3 easy steps

1. Open a self-directed IRA

You have the right to invest your IRA in physical gold, silver, platinum, and palladium, but none of these investments are available to you through your current IRA or 401(k). This is because your current retirement account provider only deals in publicly traded stocks and bonds, which can be easily administered electronically. Don’t limit yourself and let their agenda make you lose out on the best method—used for over 5,000 years of human history—to protect and grow wealth by enjoying the major benefits of owning physical gold and silver.

By opening a self-directed IRA, you can decide where to invest your IRA funds. A self-directed IRA gives you the power to invest in precious metals, and this is where the IRA experts at Gold Alliance come in. We’ll show you how a Precious Metals IRA works. We’ll also help you choose the right IRA-approved metals to maximize your portfolio’s potential, optimize its diversity, and give you complete control over your range of assets. Creating your own Gold IRA account opens the door to new investment possibilities. By going beyond the traditional stocks, bonds, and mutual funds chosen by your current custodian, you’ll be better positioned to manage any gains, losses, or risks involving your life savings.

2. Fund your account

A precious metals retirement-protection plan from Gold Alliance begins with a transfer of funds from your current qualified retirement plans (such as a 401(k), a 401(a), a 403(b), a 457, Thrift Savings Plans, and annuities) to your self-directed IRA’s custodian account, which will be in your name. Gold Alliance does not hold your funds or your precious metals—only you can control your account.

With our wealth of experience, we’re here to guide you through this process every step of the way. Remember, to achieve portfolio diversification and protection of your finances, you need to diversify a portion of your wealth—not your entire wealth—into gold and silver.

We’ll also make sure to eliminate the potential for errors in the transaction process. The best way to guarantee you perform your transfer or rollover correctly is by calling one of our Gold IRA experts for a free consultation and let us guide you through this process.

3. Select gold and silver approved for IRA investment

All that’s left to do is to stock your Gold IRA account with precious metal investments. By talking to your dedicated Account Executive, you can find out which gold and silver coins and bars are performing the best and what your options are if you want to diversify your portfolio by branching out into platinum and palladium.

When you roll over your IRA into precious metals, you’re securing your own retirement protection:

• You protect your retirement savings from currency devaluations.

• You shield your savings against the effects of inflation.

• You preserve your savings against economic crisis.

With one of Gold Alliance’s Precious Metals IRAs, you don’t get a flimsy piece of paper stating you own an interest in gold, nor are you saddled with the extortionate operating costs that come with gold ETFs. You get physical gold—a durable, proven asset in the face of volatile markets.
